    MARINARA SAUCE MADE WITH AVOCADO OIL - Sounds Healthy and Delicious

    As you may know that my husband Ryan has been on Keto Diet for almost a whole year. You must be curious about the result, and just like other people – he loves it and it turns out great. He loses about 20 pounds, as well as feels more energetic and concentrated. Keto Diet is great, but when I ask him, what do you miss the most of the normal diet? He says without any hesitations – Pizza! I guess pizza is the food which is not only missed by Ryan, but also is missed by tons of people who are on diet. Especially my mother-in-law is Sicilian, how come could Ryan give up his family’s traditional food? No worries, pizza lovers. Let’s get great products that fit in your diet.

    For the pizza crust, we choose the Superfood low net carbs pizza crust from Real Good Pizza Co., it might be a little bit pricy. But come on guys, you don’t want to save money on the things that you build your body with. For the sauce, let’s face with the truth. I recommend my favorite brand ever – Primal Kitchen’s Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce.

    I have to say, we enjoyed our Pizza Dinner so much. For a “Keto Diet” wife, I admit I love the “normal pizza”. But a “Keto style” pizza like this, I think I even love it more – a healthy diet never hurts, plus it is so yummy. I will never complain about my husband diet any more. I love Keto pizza too!

    What else can you make with Primal Kitchen Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce for the Keto diet?

    Keto Chicken Parmesan

    Golden crisp on the outside with a moist, pleasantly chewable interior, doused in a sweet yet slightly acidic tomato sauce and blanketed in a thick cloak of clingy mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, chicken parmesan defines rustic Italian-American comfort food. Typically coated in white bread crumbs, deep-fried in canola or corn oil, and served sandwiched between a crusty Italian hero loaf or served atop a bed of spaghetti strands, traditional chicken parmesan is not keto, Primal/paleo, Whole30, or any other type of “clean” eating by any stretch. But, that may be beside the point. We eat comfort foods—those familiar childhood or late-night collegiate favorites—when we want to splurge, diet be damned.

    This recipe devised a compromise that’s both decadent and keto-friendly for those times when nothing but the real thing will do. This keto chicken parmesan is dredged in pulverized pork rinds, nestled in tangy tomato basil sauce, and topped with gooey bronzed cheese in a version which is better than the original. Check out the full recipe at here.

    Gluten-Free, Low-Carb Spaghetti with Tomato Basil Marinara

    Spaghetti or linguine with a large ladle of marinara is a staple side dish to classic Italian-American dishes like chicken or eggplant parmesan, a main-event meal when paired with meatballs, and even a standalone standby for kids when topped liberally with shredded parmesan.

    If you follow a low-carb diet, this quintessential easy-to-whip-up dish is either off the menu or made with spiralized veggie noodles.  Curly wisps of zucchini are recommended, yellow or butternut squash, carrot, and beet noodles and whip these up often, but there’s no denying that veggie noodles taste like veggies. If you’re looking for a rendition of spaghetti that’s low-carb, gluten-free, and low in calories, check out this version of low-carb spaghetti with marinara sauce made with hearts of palm noodles and topped with tangy, thick, slightly sweet, bright tomato sauce punctuated with basil. Check out the full recipe at here.

    In just five short years, Primal Kitchen has catapulted from a small but mighty natural foods start-up to an industry-disrupting leader in real-food condiments, dressings, sauces, snacks and pantry staples. There are also a lot of other recipes that you might be interested with Primal Kitchen’s sauces.

    The Best (and Easiest) Chicken Breast Marinades with Primal Kitchen

    Chicken breasts are some of the most popular sources of lean protein. According to Cronometer, one six-ounce skinless chicken breast contains about 295 calories, 53 grams of protein, nearly 8 grams of fat, 0 grams of carbs, and is rich in vitamins A, B3, and D, choline, phosphorous, potassium, and magnesium. Skinless chicken breasts are a “diet food” favorite, likely for their macronutrient makeup. Pictures come to mind of ’80s aerobics queens outfitted with leotards, leg warmers, and sweatbands keeping their feathered bangs off their sweaty foreheads and cutting their poached chicken breast up into tiny bites, or bodybuilders pushing to lean out and eating multiple grilled chicken breasts for the protein. Marinade chicken breasts with great marinade sauces is very important, adding some great extra flavors in to this healthy food. How about trying Primal Kitchen‘s healthy and delicious marinade sauces?

    Chicken breast recipes often include instructions for marinating the chicken because, well, skinless chicken breast meat can be bland and boring. You need to cook chicken until the internal temperature of the breast reaches 165ºF, but cooking it any more than that can result in dry, chewy meat.

    Marinades add flavor, moisture, and interest to chicken breasts. Chicken breast marinades can contain oil, salt and pepper, vinegar or citrus juice, fresh or dried herbs, seasonings, minced garlic, a sweetener (examples: honey, sugar, maple syrup), and sauces (examples: soy sauce, fish sauce, Worcestershire sauce).

    Chicken breasts can marinate for 30 minutes to a couple of hours or even overnight. Store marinated chicken breasts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

    Freeze uncooked marinated chicken breasts in resealable bags in the freezer for up to three months. Make sure to label the outside of the resealable bag with the contents and the date you prepared and froze the marinated chicken breast.

    How to Marinate Chicken

    Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl, and stir well. You can also put all of the marinade ingredients in a mason jar, screw the lid on tight, and shake up the mason jar. Place the chicken breast or chicken breasts in a glass container with an airtight lid, or in a resealable bag, and pour the marinade into the container. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours.

    Remove the marinated chicken breasts from the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature on the kitchen counter for 10–20 minutes. Preheat the oven, grill, or a skillet on the stove to cook your chicken breasts.

    4 Easy Keto Chicken Breast Marinade Recipes

    We love saving time in the kitchen. Meal prep can be time consuming, so we’ve cut the chopping and shopping down by using Primal Kitchen dressings and marinades as the supporting main ingredient in these chicken breast marinade recipes. Check out these fabulous four ideas with five or six ingredients that take five minutes or less to pull together.

    Citrus Chicken Marinade



    To marinate: Place chicken breast in a glass container or resealable bag. Season with salt and pepper. Add Lemon Turmeric Vinaigrette and lemon slices. Cover or seal bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, and up to 24 hours.

    Balsamic Chicken Marinade



    To marinate: Place chicken breast in a glass container or resealable bag. Season with salt and pepper. Add Balsamic Vinaigrette and basil. Cover or seal bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, and up to 24 hours.

    To marinate: Place chicken breast in a glass container or resealable bag. Season with salt and pepper. Add Cilantro Lime Dressing, lime slices, and cilantro. Cover or seal bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, and up to 24 hours.

    Chicken Breast Cooking Instructions

    • In the oven: Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Place the chicken breast in an oven-safe cooking dish and bake for 25–30 minutes.
    • On the stove: Heat a teaspoon of avocado or olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the chicken breast in the skillet and cook for 5–6 minutes on each side.
    • On the grill: Lightly oil the grill grates (do so carefully to avoid a flare up). Place the chicken breast on direct heat and cook for 7–8 minutes per side.

    Chicken Breast Cooking Tips

    1. Let the chicken breast warm up to room temperature once you remove it from the refrigerator. Depending on how warm your kitchen is, this can take 10–20 minutes. Taking the chill off your chicken will ensure more even cooking.
    2. Remove the chicken from the marinade and allow any excess marinade to drip off. Discard the marinade; do not boil it or try to reuse it.
    3. To ensure your chicken breast is cooked thoroughly, use a meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature. Fully cooked chicken breast should read 165ºF.
    4. Let the chicken breast rest for 3–5 minutes after cooking before slicing it. This will help the chicken stay moist.
